WE ARE NEWARTS

NewArts provides students with interactive learning experiences to harness and release emotions.

The ARC PROGRAM

ARC is a monthly program, initially developed by the Yale School of Management and further enhanced by the Masters Department of Applied Positive Psychology at the University of Pennsylvania, who partnered with the 1214 Foundation in discovering and applying research-informed strategies used to positively impact the children we serve.

ARC stands for Aspire, Reach and Confidence. Aspire through action, Reach through perseverance, and build Confidence by discovering your strengths. ARC provides the opportunity to be trained in new ideas and grow into a mentally prepared and confident young adult.
